As Superintendent of the North Vancouver School District, it is my privilege to congratulate the following individuals on their successful election to our Board of Education: Lisa Bayne; Barry Forward; Cyndi Gerlach; Mike McGraw; Christie Sacré; Susan Skinner and Franci Stratton.

In the coming weeks, we will provide more information on our website about the trustees-elect. In the meantime, I would like to thank departing trustees Holly Back; Sheila Bouman; Linda Buchanan and Mary Tasi for their service on the Board over the past three years. We have valued their leadership, their commitment and their work on behalf of the public and students. It is not an easy role, and we appreciate the contributions they have made.

The trustees-elect will take their oaths of office at their first meeting on December 6th, 2011. We look forward to their involvement in realizing our 10-Year Strategic Plan and Vision of providing “world-class instruction and a rich diversity of engaging programs to inspire success for every student and bring communities together to learn, share and grow.”
